 My hands and wrists continue to improve and I was excited about getting my PINK ON with some painting time in my studio on Thursday evening.  I love working on old finds and think this charming old Cake Cover and Pedestal Stand had waited long enough for their transformation!  You can find the cake cover
 I found this sweet two drawer cubby thingy (what do you call this anyway????) in Tennessee earlier this summer and love how it looks painted out in the same pink paint!  You can find both offered for sale on my website.

 I also worked on those two fold-up vintage chairs I showed you a couple of days is almost done and the second will be painted identical to it (roses won out by the way!).  They are already SOLD to one of my favorite gals so now I need to get busy and finish them up.  Promise to show them to you as soon as they are ready!
Yesterday morning I had to drive into Oklahoma City (about 15 miles from my home) to visit my hand doctor and after my appointment I decided to do a wee bit of junking.  I visited one estate sale (not many on Thursdays!) and tried to not be upset when a lady who had arrived at the sale ahead of me was buying up ALL MY THINGS!  

((Totally bummed, I left empty handed.))

I did find several really sweet finds at a few thrift shops though!  My favorite by far is the tiny little chest of drawers made out of solid wood.  No particle board (or worse) here!  Not sure just how I'm going to paint this piece, I only know it's destined for my booth space sometime next week!
 I also found this neat old stool and another thrift shop.  I could tell by first glace it was a quality piece and sure enough when I turned it over I found the Ethan Allen maker's mark on the bottom!
I was really having a good day because I also snagged a couple of old Tole Lamps (which are a rare find these days) and a milk glass lamp as well.  On Saturday my Mr. AGPMan and I are going to a HUGE ESTATE SALE a couple of towns away.  He doesn't get to go with me very often because of this is going to be a real treat for me!
((Someone to carry all my JUNQUE!))


Linking up with Debra from COMMON GROUND for

Hope your Friday is fabulous...I'm off to play in my studio!

Love to you...

Love that stool! Isn't it frustrating when you see someone walking from a garage sale or thrift store with stuff you love?! Thats why I can hardly pass one without stopping because you never know what someone else is getting that you should have! :)

Beautiful! I love all of the pretty pinks:) Have a blessed day, can't wait to hear what you snag at the Estate Sale with the HUBS! Hugs!

I love that little pink storage piece, Rebecca! What a great find with that stool. I'm on the lookout for something like that myself to paint and embellish. Glad to hear your hand is doing well.

Dearest Rebecca,

You did super with your wrist; painting these two pieces to perfection. Your new finds will undergo no doubt the same fate and become beauties. That EthanAllen stool is great.
Wishing you a happy Saturday together.
Hugs and love to you,

Your painted creations are gorgeous, Rebecca! I don't know how you manage with sore wrists! I would call that cute little two drawer chest a "thingy", too:) Great thrifting finds too! Have fun this weekend!
